    Default Look for Great Lakes or Ontario area shop that runs under .010" diameter wire often.

    I have some small copper parts to cut. Now using .010" wire but would like to have .008" or .006" or even .004" used to be able to change my design somewhat. Would like to find a shop that runs small wire on a regular basis. Local shops want me to buy guides for small wire. Job is X and Y axis with no taper or tilt involved. Self threading is a must have. I have a fixture that holds 152 pieces and it is well made.

    Would like within 10 hours driving distance of Toronto so I can come and see you.

    Thanks ....... Dan Miller

    Much slower. It's been the causation of a number of heart attacks when customers hear the estimate. Also one of the best motivators to accommodate 0.008"/.2mm.

    Slow enough that the water stays crystal clear in the work tank!
